CAD/CAM solutions provider Lectra has released a new software product designed to exclusively store and consult existing textile designs.

The program, named Kaledo Asset Manager, enables designers to capitalise on their accumulated designs by creating new patterns or crafting new colourways from existing models.

It also allows designers to fully leverage their assets by simplifying the task of searching through smart libraries for existing textile designs.

"Increasingly, developing new models implies adapting old ones to today's fashions," Lectra product manager for design, Jean-Christophe Pochet, said.

"Kaledo Asset Manager facilitates, speeds and optimizes their repeated use."

Kaledo Asset Manager is designed to work with Lectra design solutions PrimaVison and Kaledo Style, and is compatible with all standard picture file formats.
